Introducing the CRESTA Exascale Videos

We recently produced a portfolio of videos to showcase the work of CRESTA. The key challenge in making these videos was to explain highly complex technology and applications to policy makers, industrialists and citizens; and through good storytelling enable the CRESTA mission to relate to people’s everyday concerns in a memorable way.

We hope that you enjoy these videos, and that they provide some insight into the fascinating and important work being carried out with our project.
